Finally Made the Decision . . .

July 16, 2008

Just today, I know I’m better off running my own business than working for someone else.  I thought it was a stop-gap, but am still liking the feeling of truly being my own person, chasing down my own jobs (which I’m billed out through the next month if the last two deals close), etc.  I also like dealing so much more directly with clients than I did the last couple of years as a staff-person.

I’m also reading “The E-Myth Revisited” (a recommendation from by brother, who has a purer enterpreneurial spirit than I do), and I “get it” about how successful businesses set out to (or after faltering, make the strategic decision to) build a business that’s not a cult of personality or based on one person’s unique expertise.  it has to be repeatable, expandable, and documented procedurally well enough so that if I’m Joe Businessman or Investor, I think, “Hey, I could do that.”

So, will be talking about what that means for a fledgling business and one that’s a little more complicated than the pie shop example the author (Micheal E. Gerber) uses throughout the book.
